Hello once again boys and girls to the star studded Hump Day Mixer. Arn is back from a crazy time in Detroit, and for this week’s chapter were taking on the other team from Texas not named Dallas…Houston. We also brought back for the celeb pick PCISteeler (Since his birthday was yesterday and he is my brudda from another mudda, I wanted to give him another crack at the HUMP. Lol.) Give him a hand!!! Now to the breakdown of the week and the lovely eye-candy enjoy faithful followers like we know you will…
How about those predictions from the Colts game?
Webslasher81: Yeah not the way I wanted it to turn out (Steelers 31-10) but a win is a win no matter how ugly the outcome.
PixburghArn: I predicted that we would win. Ok what do I win? Seriously though, I don't know what I would have predicted. I was in Detroit thinking I was in Saudi Arabia.....
PCISteeler: I predicted a blowout and was I wrong. Credit to the Colts defense for keeping them in the game. But style points do not matter, and we won the game, so on to the next one...Houston.
How did you're predicted standouts for The Colts game do?
Webslasher81: Both Rush-Hard and Wood, had mediocre games. The offense had sparks (minus the setbacks of the O-Line), The defense looked like the defense of old, (which saved our asses multiple times). Deebo's strip sack fumble into the arms of Taz was amazing. It still behooves me how we only have 1 turnover in the past 3 games.
PixburghArn: I was going to predict Wallace on Offense and Deebo on defense. Wallace was a huge bright spot and Deebo could make a case though I would lean toward Troy.
PCISteeler: My standout was Troy. He reminds me of a player in Madden in easy. When you can have a defensive player with speed and you can put him on the edge and blitz all day. You are either going to get a sack or a TFL. He is back people!
How about the predictions for the Texans game?
Webslasher81: Tough game ahead, again on the road. I believe we will shine, it won't be pretty (like Brady/Beiber's hair) but we will get the job done.Steelers 20 - Steers: 17.
PixburghArn: I am going to do something I almost never do. I am going to say we play inspired but it's not enough. I won't give any score because I can't bring myself to do that, but you know what I'm sayin.....
PCISteeler: Very tough game. Houston seems to be everyone's darling team. We win, Steelers 26 - Houston 24
How about the predicted standouts for the Texans game?
Webslasher81: Polamalu was on fire, and I don't expect him to let up I have him on "D" (1 sack, 1 pick, 7 TFL), and on "O" The entire "Young Money" crew will be on point. Wallace for his 4th 100+ yard game and 1 TD.
PixburghArn: I am going to say that the standout on offense will be Antonio Brown. Even with Wallace going over 100 yards again (another prediction of mine) Brown will be the real standout making huge plays. On defense I am going to say this is the week Timmons makes big plays....though I predict Farrior/Foote will get plenty of chances. But will they seize it? That's the question.
PCISteeler: Timmons. He had a hot start last year. Our defense needs him to catch fire. Troy is back, Harrison is slowly but at right timing gettin hot and Ike is shutting it down. We are going to need Timmons in the next weeks as we will be going against some talented TE's. On Offense i believe its Ben. Throw the ball out please. We would like to see at least 5 more years of you playing.
What concerns do you have this week?
Webslasher81: As always the O-line and the secondary.
PixburghArn: I could stick this one on the O-line again, but I think they will be better than last week. My concerns are Andre Johnson and the Texans offense. The offense should be able to eat. I just hope they don't use butter...if you know what I mean.
PCISteeler: As stated the OLine. And Mendenhall. I want to see him hit the hole harder (TWSS)!
Cheerleader of the week:
Webslasher81: Sticking to the old ways of how Arnie likes it.(using cheerleaders from the teams were playing, lol.) I present to you, my future wife: Erica.
PixburghArn: I don't use cheerleaders. I'm a gentleman. :) Anyhow meet my new Texas attraction: Whitney.
PCISteeler: Keeping with tradition here’s mine…Galen.
International Hostess of the week:
Webslasher81: Ok, Russia is checked off my list for now.so I want to show my love by giving you a very yummy morsel, Croatia's finest: Szintia Balogh.

PixburghArn: Once again, I was too busy last night and they got us blocked big time. But I got this picture full size for my international Miss Riyo Mori.
PCISteeler: This week I’m going with (as a flip of the coin) Ukraine…meet: Kresna.
Well ladies and gents this wraps up another tasty morsel of the HDM. Tune in for next week’s tirade when we take on the Titans, at the Ketchup Bottle…
